Olympic Support of Trans rights

The above linked article tells about Chelsea Andrea Wolfe, one of the first trans women to compete as an alternate in the Olympics. She wanted to win just to be able to show the Trump administration how she feels about their excluding trans women from sports.

The Olympic committee has specific rules about trans athletes. As long as the athlete is following the rules, which are listed in the article above, the Olympic committee has no issues.

I hope she wins, but I really hope that she doesn’t burn the flag.

Transgender historical figures

I found the above linked article late last year. I figured that it would be fitting for Pride Month, so I waited until now to post it.

According to the article, all transgender means is that a person’s sense of gender identity doesn’t conform to their birth sex.

Many of the people mentioned in the article had surgery to transform from one sex to the other, but many didn’t. I had only heard of a few of these people, but all of them have interesting stories.

Albert Cashier was born Jennie Irene Hodgers, but lived as a man, supposedly to make a living in America.
